JAMESTOWN â€“ Former Governor Bruce G. Sundlun, who died at his home last Thursday at the age of 91, is remembered here not for his business acumen, his courageous leadership of the state or his powerful patronage of the arts.
Sundlunâ€™s local legacy is that of a man deeply interested in his community, always willing to talk over matters of civic concern, available to serve as figurehead for the smallest island observances and as patrician figure frequently seen at town council meetings.
HOPKINTON - Independent candidate Frank T. Landolfi was elected to fill the vacant town council seat during a special election on Tuesday, July 26.
NARRAGANSETTâ€”Senator Jack Reed, along with Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, is lobbying support for legislation that would give Rhode Island commercial fishermen a voice on the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC), a board which establishes fishing regulations for the federal waters off the mid-Atlantic shore.
